'Bigg Boss' winners have always been dignified: Salman

Mumbai, Sep 17, 2012, (PTI):

Actor Salman Khan, who returns as a host for the sixth season of reality show 'Bigg Boss', says, though controversies form the part of the show but the winners have always been dignified.

"Through controversies contestants feel they can go ahead in the show. The participants who were in the 'Bigg Boss' house thought if they would fight they will be seen more on the show...publicity. But one must not forget that the winners on the show have always been dignified people," Salman told reporters here last evening at the press conference of the show.

Last year, when Mahek Chahel was one of the contestants on the show, there were reports that Salman had recommended her, considering that she had worked with him in superhit film 'Wanted'.


"I don't want to recommend anyone...I don't want to be biased and partial," the 'Dabangg' Khan stressed.

This time, however, Salman has promised that it would be a 'family' show.

"The show will now be aired at family time...prime time at 9 PM everyday. Until last year, the show used to start from 10.30 PM. Now we would connect with the whole family this time," he noted.

"During the last season, I had to intervene as the situation was out of control as I was getting feedback from everyone. I don't like to intervene," he said.

Salman, who is riding high on the success of his fourth consecutive blockbuster 'Ek Tha Tiger', this time wants common man to join him on 'Big Boss'.

People are being asked to send an SMS or log on to the website of the Colors channel, which airs the show. They will have to participate in a contest to appear on 'Bigg Boss 6'.
Also a parrot and fish will be the new elements in the 'Big Boss' house this time.

Salman, who has always been a trendsetter through his movies, will be seen sporting a french beard and a new wardrobe on the show and has even shot promos in this avatar.
"The look was meant only for the promos," Salman said.

'Bigg Boss' sees celebrity contestants staying in a house for about three months, cut off from the outside world. They are overseen by a 'mysterious person', the 'Bigg Boss'.

This will be Salman's third time as the 'Bigg Boss' host, which has been earlier hosted by celebrities like Amitabh Bachchan and Shilpa Shetty.

The superstar, who had co-hosted the last season with actor friend Sanjay Dutt, will now be hosting the show alone.

The show will go on air from October 7 everyday at 9 PM on Colors channel.
